Hello everybody
I have a litle LAN with a few PCs and Linux gateway (NAT). And want to filter spam and scan for viruses incoming mail from the world on this linux gateway. I found an antvirus software (clamav) and heard a lot of good thinks for spam assasin. My question is what mail server i may use. Can I do this with sendmail or I need POP3 server? Can you recommend me some?
Thank you!

If it is just about incoming mail, you can always consider fetchmail + procmail.
